Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of raising funds for St Catherine’s Hospice. When you make a donation to St Catherine’s Hospice through our charity shops, we are able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation. This is called Gift Aid and amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give.
Last year, more than £400,000 was raised through generous supporters signing up to claim Gift Aid on their donations to our shops – this incredible amount of money means we can be there for even more local people who need our care. Will you sign up to Gift Aid and help raise even more money the next time you donate goods to your nearest St Catherine’s Hospice charity shop?
If you’re a UK taxpayer, then you can sign up to Gift Aid and help raise even more money for St Catherine’s Hospice when you next donate items to our charity shops.
It is easy to sign up to – you just need to complete a Gift Aid Declaration form (available in all of our hospice shops). This form is a statement from the customer to the charity confirming that they want to donate through Gift Aid and receive tax back on their donation for St Catherine’s Hospice.
All money raised through Gift Aid goes directly to helping your local hospice support and care for more people when life comes full circle.
